Hello there, I've recently bought a hard drive enclosure for my WD500 GB internal drive but it will not show up after set up installs the drive.
Recently my old Dell Inspiron from 2005 gave out and I took the spare hard drive (not the main hard drive with the OS) out to get the files off of it and purchased the enclosure. I've installed it according to the manual and it functions (makes the proper noises, the power light and activity light is on) fine as far as I can tell. My issue is that after the computer finds it and accepts it as a USB Mass Storage Device, I can't find it.
The computer (Toshiba Satellite L455D with windows 7) will go through the set up and install process and recognize the hard drive (WDC WD50 00AADS-00M2B0 USB device) but when I look for it in my computer it is nowhere to be found. I've been scouring the internet for answers and I have gotten very few. Most tutorials and suggestions aren't helping at all. I'm a little lost here and I hope someone out there can help me out.
Thanks in advance.
